THE CAMP FORD HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION
East Texas Heritage Museum Association
Camp Ford was the Confederacy's largest prisoner of war camp west of the Mississippi.
|The Camp Ford Historical Association is organized to build and maintain a museum dedicated to educating the public about Camp Ford, the Confederacy’s largest prisoner of war internment center west of the Mississippi. The museum will be part of a visitor’s center to be built on U.S. Highway 271 immediately across from the Camp Ford Park, which is managed by the Smith County Historical Society, not affiliated with the CFHA. The museum and park will be independent but complementary attractions.|
